Your introduction to a full-moon party went something like this: Acting on a whim, you met a handful of women (lets call it a coven) for a backyard party with promises of potluck, pleasantries, guided visualization, and just enough wackiness to make you a card-carrying member of your own Ya-Ya Sisterhood. But one sip of that witches brew and the next thing you know, its three days later. You wake with a massive headache and a back tattoo of what you hope to God is a sloppy Georgia OKeeffe flower and not a massive vulva. Naturally, the thought of another full-moon party has you on edge. So start slow, say with a glamorous tryst on the seventh-floor tropical pool deck of the Ritz-Carlton for Thursday nights Full Moon Party. Watch the moon rise with enormous telescopes, down Blue Moon mini martinis, and get a glimpse of the future with a couple of tarot-card readers on hand. Live DJs, discounted cocktails and appetizers, and a killer view of the Atlantic Ocean await from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Ritz-Carlton (1 Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Fort Lauderdale) Call 954-465-2300. No cover and discounted valet.
